Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We didn’t book but were seated no problem. 9pm n Thursday night. Staff were friendly, attentive and great with kids. The food was exceptional. Every single dish was bursting with flavour. Delicious and plentiful. Best curry had in years!

Last minute decision to go for Indian food after a long day of DIY in our daughter's new house. Not familiar with the are so took a chance on the Chathouse. Arrived at 8pm on a Friday evening and walked in to a large restaurant...with only one table occupied which was a bit of a concern. However we were given a warm welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. The restaurant itself is well appointed, bright and clean. I would not hesitate to go there again when we are back in Croydon.More

Visited with my wife and our friends for a night out. Beautiful food and good wine list. We enjoyed the mix grill and chicken Handi. The air con was amazing, proper relaxed. Service was ace, good hot towels to wipe off at the end and...friendly smiles. Our bill was fairly reasonable and we even left a good tip! We’ll worth it. Will return back as we cannot fault a single thing. Only recommendation would be wish they delivered to Coulsdon!! Love the food so tasty.More

I’ve tried many different dishes across a lot of Indian restaurants throughout croydon, but….. NEVER have I come across flavours soooo vibrant and delicious, consistently like Chat House. HONESTLY THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. The amazingggggggg taste and texture of their Chicken Dhansaks and Chat House...Specials, as well as other dishes such as the Lamb Dishes that comes with a beautiful variety of different taste with each different lamb dish, particularly the lamb hariyali and Lamb Jalfrezi standing out for me personally. HONESTLYY!!! This is definitely a restaurant that caters amazing food in a family friendly restaurant with kind and patient staff who go all the way making sure the SERVICE is TOP NOTCH!! DEFINITELY A PLACE TO COME BACK TO AGAIN AND AGAIN. Hasn’t disappointed so far in my few visits!!!!More

We went as a group of guys from church and had an amazing evening. The venue was light, modern and airy and we really enjoyed going there. We had a good number of starters at each table which were very appetising and enjoyable and a...good opportunity to try many different dishes. The main course was a number of meat(s)and vegetarian dishes, rice(s), vegetable dishes, bhaji's, nam breads which were well presented and very tasty. The service by the staff and management was first class and we had a fantastic evening. Can't wait to come back another time to try the extensive menu.More

This is now our go to Indian restaurant, and we think the best in south Croydon, the food is always well spiced , the portions are decent and the service is always very good. We’ve been on numerous occasions with friends and as a couple...and always been very impressed.More

I’ve been coming to ChatHouse since 2011, and very rarely find another Indian restaurant/takeaway wherever I go that compares. They know us well and greet us like we are family every time. Staff who work there have done so for a long time so do...recognise regulars, some by name. We have now moved to Reigate so can no longer get takeaway orders but we do make the effort to come to the restaurant. The Garlic chilli chicken is just so excellent with fresh ingredients, along with the chicken jalfrezi, chicken tikka masala and chilli paneer. I went for my birthday recently after having not been for a while due to covid and I absolutely loved the experience. The only thing we would criticise is that the bill is not computerised, making it very difficult to check as it very much depends on the person writing it. Service charge is automatically added in the restaurant no matter how many people are being served which I actually think is quite wrong: large groups I understand, not just two of us. We would tip anyway but that is very much our choice. Improvements we would want the restaurant to make are the computerised bill and perhaps adding a gratuity option on the card reader for tips rather than automatically incorporating the service charge in the bill.More

Attentive service & clean restaurant. I just personally felt the food wasn’t as good as previous visits. I don’t know what they’re now serving as pilau rice but it was just a stodgy clump of white rice unlike any pilau I’ve ever been served before...in there or anywhere. Chicken tikka masala was quite sweet tasting. I would like to have given a better review but based on the food I ate I can’t give ‘very good’ on this occasion. Other members of the party enjoyed theirs but as they’ve not been before they can’t compare.More

I really dont think I've had a worse indian . Food tasteless. Ordered a chicken jalfrezi which tasted like a tandoori mixed with a watered down sauce. Chicken was not as expected. Thick lumps of tough meat. Not sure you could call it chicken. Also...ordered their special byriani again tasteless, greasy and stuffed with chilies to provide flavour. I'm seriously disappointed. I think deliveroo and Just Eat maybe part of the problem. Too many orders, chefs cannot cope with demand. This is my second bad experience and I think I'm going to try and find restaurants or takeaways that are not farmed out to these mamoth service providers.More

In last 6 months I've had two excellent experiences with takaway food from C.House but last night was disappointed. food was luke warm. pilau rice wasn't pilau at all but simple boiled rice (flavourless & stodgy). Lamb (Bhuna) was fatty and not the usual good...flavour. sag paneer cheese hadnt cooked as usual. just looked like the cheese had been thrown in. I plugged C.House with my 'bubble' and got them to order too and my friend had a horrible hair in her biriyani. Very off putting. Doubt I'll be using againMore

This was our second meal after ordering from deliveroo, wow these guys are sooo busy which is good but the wait was over an hour on Saturday night. They did notify us & the food was PIPING hot and sooo tasty! The butter chicken was...delish. We were excited to order again, but had to wait an hour 15mins the next time!! glad they are doing well but just happy the service is good so its ok. The drivers were friendly and followed our instructions so all in all good service. Pleaseee try to lower your delivery time and we will order more, can't wait to come inMore
